As a [biologist] I want to [reuse and remix data] so that I can [do my research]
Most researchers do not spend much time thinking about persistent identifiers - they just want to get on with their work. PID infrastructure for all things scholarly promises to deliver on seamless integration of research resources, as well as make reporting and analysis of research outcomes more streamlined. To realise this vision, the good news is: we are not starting from scratch. To realise this vision, the bad news is: we are not starting from scratch. How can we build coherent and functional PID infrastructure in the midst of a rich ecosystem that is constantly growing in scale and diversity? In this talk I will give a perspective on life with and without PIDs in the life sciences, outlining some of the learning from the journey thus far and some hopes for the future.

The (ID) equivalency is in the eye of the beholder
Determining identifier equivalency is key to data integration and to realizing the scientific discoveries that can only be made by collating our vast disconnected data stores.
There are two key problems in determining equivalency - conceptual and syntactic alignment. Conceptual alignment often relies on Xrefs and string-matching against synonyms. There is indeed a better way! Algorithmic determination of identifier equivalency across different sources can use a combination of Xrefs, priors rules, existing semantic relations, and synonyms to create equivalency cliques than can highlight the discrepancies in conceptual definitions for manual review. This is especially useful for data sources annotated with concept drift and differences, such as diseases. Syntactic issues are that there are so many variations of the same identifier, making data joins difficult. We present a framework to reconcile and provide authoritative and integration-ready prefixed identifiers (CURIES), to capture and consolidate prefixes and to build links across key resource registries. The combination of JSON-LD context technology with a prefix metadata repository provides the basis for the infrastructure to handle identifiers in a consistent fashion. Finally, this architecture also allows resources to be self describing "beacons" with respect to their identifiers.
